Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Submitted by: LAGIRL

A spicy chicken and pesto pasta dish that's easy to adjust to any heat level. I created it after eating a similar dish at a Santa Monica restaurant, and it's one of my favorites. Serve with additional grated Parmesan, if desired. As an option, it's delicious with creamy goat cheese stirred in at the end.

After they baste in the sun all summer long, I cut down my basil plants and make this delightful pesto. This basil pesto has been mellowed with fresh spinach and enhanced by the taste of black olives. I make big batches and freeze in small container for the whole year.
